of the sweeping address delivered in the u.s. capital in this must have pomp and circumstance. president obama's first state of the union since his re-election will be ambitious in his vision and no doubt punctuated. maybe some of us watching at home will be applauding. if you are near a television, the state of the union will be unavoidable. the networks and cable news will, as always, broadcast wall-to-wall coverage of the speech. the attention given to the president's speech is indicative of everything that falls under the category, very important things required by the constitution. have you ever noticed how the constitution described the state of the union? you might be surprised to find the founders are vague and sound bored with the whole idea of it. article two, section three reads he shall from time-to-time give to the congress information of the state of the union. recommend to their consideration such measures as he may judge necessary and expedient. he may. on extraordinary occasions, convene both houses or either of them. in disagreement with them, he may adjourn them to such time

this is not the consolatory obama that came in january 2011 with that need that he knew he was chasing. that he was going to have to work together with the republicans. a somewhat toned down barack obama from the 2012 state of the union trying to talk to the voters, set the tone for the campaign. he wanted to deliver this. hey, guys, we have to do some of these votes. i wonder, they have a lot of what i would call very well pull tests. the issue that they hit on on education and the economy in particular, things like universal prepaid, raising the minimum wage, these are tangible items that average, middle-class families listening to this , speech. i have a feeling that could resonate very well. they accomplish what they wanted to do, which is talk about the economy in simpler terms over the head of washington. >> chuck todd, thank you for joining us. >> all right. >> joining us from san antonio, texas, the mayor of san antonio. mayor castro, thank you for joining us. >> let me ask you about the word comprehensive. we have all been if through watching the attempt by the government to reform immigration
. president obama's state of the union feels more like three speeches at once. a short-term rallying cry, a long-term laundry list and an unusually emotional plea for action to change gun laws. >>> while senator marco rubio's watershed moment for the party came up dry in one way, his punchy primetime pitch did rev up the base. and it stirred up more 2016 talk. >>> also this morning, an exclusive first interview. exit interview of sorts. with now former indiana senator dick lugar since he left the senate on what's wrong with congress, politics and the republican party, and how he thinks it can be fixed. good morning from washington. it's wednesday, february 13, 2013. this is the daily rundown. i'm chuck todd. reminder, folks, it's february 13th. husbands, boyfriends, you've got one more day to get your act together. let's go to my first reads of the morning. the president's state of the union address ended up arguably as three speeches in one. it started out with a focus on the looming economic and budget crises that washington's about to face. moved on to a laundry list of familiar sound
. >>> to politics now, first lady michelle obama is among the mourners remembering a 15-year-old chicago girl who died a tragic random death. leah pendelton was gunned down after participating in the obamas' inauguration. "the new york times" topped its paper and we'll dig into the legal justification for drone strikes later in the program and president obama warning that the middle class will get hit hardest if congress does not do something to stop those massive cuts set to take effect march 1st. >> if the sequester is allowed to go forward, thousands of americans who work in fields like national security, education or education are likely to be laid off. democrats and republicans can still get together on a balanced solution to the deficit crisis. republican senator mitch mcconnell says that he know that sequestration would have consequences, but he blames president obama for not putting forward an acceptable plan to prevent it. for more on that, jonathan strong, staff writer, role call, alexander burns and national political reporter with politico. good afternoon to both of you. >> hello. >>
to hear the republican senate leader. mitch mcconnell who in president obama's first term said it was his number one priority to defeat the president. not to get people working or the economy going. i hope he gives the president a chance tonight. the president's goal is to lay out a plan to grow the economy with respect to the sequester. the president's been very clear it would be irresponsible and reck tols allow the sequester to take place. we now know from the budget office it would cost us hundreds of thousands of jobs if we don't find a smarter way to reduce that deficit over a longer period of time. democrats in the house have put forward a concrete plan to substitute for the sequester for the remainder of the year. unfortunately, we haven't had a chance to vote on it over here but hopefully the president's speech tonight will lay out a plan that some of the republican colleagues will agree to join with us in trying to pass. >> and then last hour, as you well know, the rally outside of the capitol, number of union workers we're told roughly 300 supporters joined in chanting sequest

the administration justifies the targeted killing of american citizens. the white house says president obama has directed the department of justice to brief members of the intelligence committees. the move comes after a bipartisan group of 11 senators led by democratic senator ron wyden of oregon called for more insight into the government's legal rationale for drone strikes against americans abroad. senator wyden said on twitter, "every american has the right to know when their government believes it's allowed to kill them." this followed the leaked white house memo obtained by nbc news this week detailing criteria required for such a strike. this is all unfolding before today's senate confirmation hearing for john brennan, nominated to be the next head of the cia. and andrea mitchell, i wonder if this could, in any way, get in the way of brennan again. >> well, this is so much in a state of flux right now. clearly, i mean, the president's called to senator wyden last night, so unusual to try to reassure him and try to ward off what could be a calamitous hearing today. the fact is that brennan
and especially if you come in with not that much experience as both lincoln and obama did, now you know you learn from that the most important thing we got to figure out in the second term is how much do they learn from their mistakes and their strength in the first term. the boldness he's showing that's his decision that's what he's learned and we'll see if that works. >> rose: john heilemann what do you read as the people he's chosen for his national security team how he sees his second term on that front. >> well gosh charlie, that's a, it's obviously a team that's gone through its turmoil. there was turmoil around the question whether susan rice will be secretary of state. he decided not to put her forward. there's turmoil now around chuck hagel. this is, people have pointed out, this is a bunch of seasoned white guys, they are a team that's nothing like as star studded as the team he had in his first term. again i think that reflects to some large extent the degree of something doris was just talking about was the president has swayinger right now and a lot of confidence. and forepolicy, he
-wing media, president obama was not actually throwing a football in this photo. you see, you can tell because he is looking slightly up there. that is just unexplainable. why would you do such a thing? clearly it is doctored? there is no way in football, you always look to the down or side unless you're a secretly gay-married muslim, bulldozing reagan. now this, according to the right, this is not really the picture of the president shooting a gun. yes, when the new republic asked the president if he ever shot a gun, he said yes, he was skeet-shooting. according to them, this is not really the picture of the president shooting a gun, you see they can tell because the president is shooting with the gun sort of too flat. it is too straight, see, now, he is too straight. then there is the errant smoke where it shouldn't be. also the stamps, bad form, can't be real. also a little pot belly. no, i'm not kidding, that was actually part of the argument against the veracity of the picture, you can see his tummy, where you actually had a jelly donut. where he wears a muslim ring and a gay ring and doe
president obama delivered his first state of the union address since his re-election. seated among the lerkz and house chambers were americans who symbolize the the priorities including young undocumented immigrants and victims of begun vie -- gun violence. he became emotional preventing further shootings just as he was in the aftermath of sandy hook. he sought his vision for a stronger middle class. he spoke of immigration reform, raising the minimum wage and energy independence. quoted john f. kennedy 1962 speech saying the substitution makes us not rivals for power but partners for progress. you agenda he made few concessions to republicans. it remans to be seen whether the president can break away from the bitter partisanship and dysfunction of his first term and whether he can strike the grand bargains the country needs. >> the greatest nation on worth cannot keep conducting its business by drifting from one manufactured crises to the next we can't do it. [applause] let's agree, let's agree right here right now to keep the people's government open and pay our bills on time and always up
with president obama's very public attempt to pressure congress into putting off billions of dollars in automatic spending cuts, cuts he fears will wreck the u.s. economic recovery. basically he wants lawmakers to kick the can down the road one more time. let's go to our white house correspondent dan lothian. dan is joining us. dan, the president made a little bit of a surprise appearance over in the white house briefing room. >> reporter: that's right. very surprising because the president in the past has criticized these short-term deals saying that this is not what the american people sent their elected officials to washington to do. you have this march 1st deadline quickly approaching. while congress is trying to work on a bigger budget, 1 pine point $2 trillion package, the president says they need more time in order to continue tipping away at the problem. the big concern is that everyone believes that the economy is moving in the right direction. the president is pointing to auto sales, the housing, to manufacturing. and so there's this worry that if this see quester happens, if these deep
, lisa. good morning. >> hey, bill. good morning, everyone. president obama is speaking at the armed forces farewell tribute today in honor of defense secretary lienon panetta. he will be at joint base myer henderson at 4:00 this afternoon. this is the formal goodbye for panetta stepping down from his position. yesterday, he testified over the attacks in benghazi where he revealed there was no advanced warning for those attacks. he said that factor plus the time and distance involved prevented the u.s. military from reaching the consulate before four americans were killed. panetta also confirmed he personally broke the news to president obama the night of the attack but that the two did not speak the rest of the evening as the assault continued to unfold. the president had told panetta to do whatever he needed to do to protect our people out in benghazi. today, house democrats wrap up their annual retreat with a little comedy. stephen colbert is speaking to the caucus thanks to an invite from nancy pelosi. after his comedy routine, pelosi will interview
. >> that was president obama today in minneapolis, once again urging congress to make a move on gun control legislation. but over the last 36 hours we've seen some actual shifts within the gun control debate. first, there was chris wallace's kind of amazing interview with the national rifle association frontman wayne lapierre, the 15-minute interview demonstrated he was not just out of step with the center but also some with the right. take the background checks, for instance, 92% of people favor the background gun checks, 85% support the gun checks. but lapierre called the background checks a fraud. >> i think what they will do is turn this universal check on the law abiding on a universal registry of the law abiding people, they don't want that. >> forgive me, sir, you take something that is here and you say it is going to go all the way over there. there is no indication, i mean, i can understand you saying that is the threat. but there is nothing that anyone in the administration has said that indicates they will have a universal registry. >> that was really something, the nra getting smacked down
of my friends say they would much rather lose. >> if that's the modus going forward, advantage obama the next 18 month or so, he will always pivot off this tri fur kated screen. >> and cokie, i know you were in the kindergarten in the '60s so you don't remember this. >> right. >> why don't you compare the republican party where it was from '60 to '68. >> many of the people in the conservative movement at the time, it was movement will say, look, we lost in '64, but it laid the groundwork for the reagan victory in '80. that was republican party they would say we were proud of opposed to the weak imitation of the democrats that they considered rockefeller and nixon. they think it was a success. look, if you look right now at where the party is an where the people are, it doesn't add up. talk about math, this -- the republican party is the party of white guys and michael. >> you saw what they did with me. >> white men are 34% of the population. >> and marco rubio. >> you can't make a party of that. you can't do it. when registonald reagan was ele in 1980, white men were 46% of the elect
. officer down. >> another officer down? >> while the cabin burned, president obama pleaded for stricter gun control bills to be brought to the floor. >> gabby giffords deserves a vote. the families of newtown deserve a vote. the families of aurora deserve a vote. the families of oak creek and tucson and blacksburg and the countless other communities ripped open by gun violence, they deserve a simple vote. >> a lot of you are probably saying why should we care what an accused cold blooded murderer says? should dorner's words be even part of our conversation on guns or do they shed light on an issue that continues to divide and confuse many americans? it's a tough question and uncomfortable but i'm going to ask it anyway. does the dorner case teach us anything about guns? facebook doft com/car facebook.com/carolcnn or tweet me @carolcnn. >>> stories we're watching now in "the newsroom" 30 minutes past the hour, hundreds of people including students showed up in waterbury, connecticut, to dig out the city's schools from last week's blizzard. picking up a shovel earned the workers it 8.25 an ho
of the union address of his second term -- >> the state of our union is strong. >> reporter: -- president obama made a direct challenge to congress. >> let's get this done. >> reporter: as he laid out his vision for the country, the president repeatedly called on democrats and republicans to act. >> the american people don't expect government to solve every problem. but they do expect us to put the nation's interests before party. >> reporter: it all came on the same day speaker john boehner called the president out for not having the courage or guts to make tough choices on the budget. the president used the power of the podium to push back. >> some in congress have proposed preventing only the defense cuts. by making even bigger cuts to things like education and job training. medicare and social security benefits. that idea is even worse. >> reporter: as is typical of most state of the union addresses, the president covered lots of ground. >> our first priority is making america a magnet for new jobs and manufacturing. we must do more to combat climate change. send me a comprehensive immigrat
is in washington to see the speech as is nbc's chuck todd. and former obama campaign adviser robert gibbs is here as well. robert, i understand that i am for the first time tonight able to introduce you as an msnbc contributor. congratulations on that. thanks for being here. >> thank you. i'm happy to be here. >> gun safety reform, immigration reform, climate change, education reform, election reform, ending the war in afghanistan. the president has been explicit that these are all on deck for his second term agenda. how do you pick which of these things can be helped along by prominent placement in a speech like that? >> i think that's what will be interesting to see tonight. the president begins by talking about the budget difficulties and situations we have to deal with over the next couple of weeks. get into a huge priority like immigration and clean energy which the president has. and i expect this speech will end with a pretty emotional call for doing something on gun safety. >> we're right now looking at a live picture of the justices of the supreme court having been announced and entering

. look at the front page of "usa today." we'll start there. new polling is showing that president obama has a strong lead over congressional republicans on a host of big issues playing out right now in washington. that's according to the you in noons from "usa today" and pew research center. 45% of those polled say they support the president's approach to cutting the federal deficit. 38% support republicans, even a majority of republican voters endorse tax hikes as well as spending cuts. on gun reform, the president's approach polls six points higher than that of the gop. the poll also finds less than one-third of americans would blame the president if the sequester cuts kick in. nearly half of all americans would blame republicans. and on immigration, half of those polled say the president is taking the right approach. 33% endorse how republicans are tackling the issue. >> so james, if i'm still congressman in northwest florida and somebody hands me this and says, you're in trouble. i'm in trouble. i may get 79% instead of 80% of the vote, but that's what's running the republican brand
